Buy LEGO Alien Conquest Online today!

Updated on January 9, 2012

Our new Alien Conquest Collection

Christmas has been and gone and with it my sons Lego collection has expanded. This year I have invested in the Lego Alien Space Conquest collection most of which is packaged for aged 8 to 14 years but as with all Lego, the upper age limit is extendable. I was in the grocery store having a discussion about the merits of the new Mother ship with the Man on the counter- our combined age was well over 100 years!

Space Alien Mother Ship


The Lego Space Alien Mother ship is a space ship with an outer ring around it, which spins independently of the ship and makes a rather strange sound. Warning to parents, it really can get on your nerves once you have got over the panic of what that noise is! My 14 year old son made the set up quite quickly though there were a few pained moments when things did not go quite right so a younger child may need some parental help.

There are some neat mini figures with the set including the Alien commander who drives the ship and a reporter. The Alien Commander sits in his covered dome and has tentacles with a green head, and also a red cloak, almost as if he is ready to come to life! When he does he operates an abducting claw that can carry the mini figures away! The set seems pretty strong and reliable having been demonstrated over Christmas by my son who is a big and clumsy teenager. I think that younger children might like to use the ship and create battles using other Lego in the collection or even any of the Lego Star Wars.

Space Jet Copter Encounter


Lego Space Jet Copter Encounter- Initially I was a bit disappointed as it was blue, not green but then my son explained that it was attacking the Aliens rather than being an Alien, which explained the difference! At first glance it looks like a helicopter gunship but it has a few added extras; a detachable prison pod for keeping safe the aliens that you manage to capture and some cool dual flick missiles for when you go into battle against the mother ship, which actually looks pretty small in comparison to the size of the Jet Copter. This set is a play situation in itself as it includes an Alien craft with pilots- when entering into battle the alien craft can split in two making it much more of a challenge to shoot down. It was easy to make and quite solid- it has not broken up yet!

Alien Conquest Tripod Invader


Lego Alien Conquest Tripod Invader- I bought this set in December and gave my son a few pieces every day with the instructions given on December 24th, he really liked it and kept trying to make it, despite not knowing which set it was! (I was going to get him the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar but it had sold through). This set has the Alien spacecraft on legs- really like in the War of the Worlds. It comes with two mini figures- the alien pilot and the businessman, complete with briefcase, which the alien is chasing. With a moving saucer that can be removed to capture the human, moveable laser guns and pose able legs this set is a play set which stands alone. Again. Once I gave him the instructions this set was easy for a 14 year old to build and has survived Christmas.

There are other Alien sets and as we (or should I say as my son) gets more pieces I shall include them.

      greatToysmall- yes it is a great set, according to my son- he is at the age that he can't wait! I guess he will still be collecting it when he is a lot older

      Thanks for your visit

      This is an excellent review of the new line. I stayed away from this one myself. I'm hoping to pick some up when the stores do their (what appears to be) bi-annual clearance. Hopefully, there will be some neat ones available. I think the mini-figures with the sets look great. Voted up!

      UMM! I am looking at four mega blocks sailing ships right now, that adorn my china cabinet( the top of it actually) They had the Pirates of the Carribean rights before Lego.

      You are right they are good educational tools. Thankyou for your visit.

      As a kid I could play with LEGO’s for hours on end. Don’t tell the kids, but it is an excellent educational tool. Problem solving, spatial orientation and other traits are enhanced and become useful as an adult.

      Mega Brands, Incorporated, formerly Mega Bloks, Incorporated is just like LEGO but cheaper. Mega Brands carries more war oriented kits like the P 51 Mustang. LEGO has continually tried to sue but were not successful because the functional design of the basic brick is considered a matter of patent rather than trademark law, and all relevant LEGO patents have expired.

      With both companies selling this type of building block system, the possibilities and enjoyment are almost endless.
